9. I have a feeling that if it weren't for people like those responding in the blog,

this wouldn't be as big as it is going to be. I really don't think there's much to this, but it certainly is entertaining watching the fundamentalists blow circuits over it.

3. I'm sorry- I have no patience for "biblical archaeologists". They're
not scientists- they begin with a belief and set out to find evidence that supports it, while ignoring all the contradictory evidence. Why do these people think they've found Jesus' tomb? I assume it's the usual brand of "proof"... something like 'his name has an E in it and he died roughly 2000 years ago'?

My apologies to the Discovery team if they're not in fact biblical archaeologists.

4. I don't think this team is the 'officially sanctioned' by fundies
and were funded by someone else. What I thought is interesting is the symbol on the ossuaries - The Seed of Life - which is an Egyptian symbol. What most people aren't aware of is that Joseph and Mary were titles of the High Priest and High Priestess of the Temple, which was based on Egyptian and Canaan/Phoenician rites (not Hebrew). Just a little sumpin sumpin to make you hmm....
